BOARD OF APPEALS REPORT FOR 1968 

The Board of Appeals heard five matters during the first eleven 
months of 1968. No unheard application is now pending, so it is safe to 
assume that no hearings wiU be scheduled in December, and this report 
may be considered as inclusive for the year. 

No appeals to the Superior Court from decisions of the Board have 
been taken in 1968. 

There was pending in Norfolk Superior Court an appeal from a de- 
cision entered several years ago. During 1968, this appeal was dismissed 
without cost to the Town. 

All the money expended by the Appeal Board from its 1968 budget 
was for advertising of public hearings on applications for variances or 
for special permits. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Cohasset Board Of Appeals 

ROGER B. COULTER, Chairman

REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 

The Water Department is required by statute to operate from in- 
come and not through tax revenue. Consequentiy, its capital improve- 
ment program was curtailed during the past year due to insufficient in- 
come. The only major undertaking accomplished was the installation of 
a new pump and the reactivation of one of the Sohier Street wells, thus 
increasing their yield. Contrary to general belief, we are still highly de- 
pendent upon our wells, especially during the summer months. 

Private developers installed 3500 feet of main and six new hydrants, 
which have been accepted by the department. 

Forty-two new services were provided and fifteen services were re- 
newed during the year. Our system now serves 1724 residential and 82 
business consumers exclusive of the schools and other town-owned fa- 
cilities. 

The volume of water treated and distributed this year nearly equalled 
last year's record of 203 million gallons. Had rigid curtailment of use 
not been required last summer, the record volume would have again been 
exceeded. 

The existing system is incapable of meeting peak demands. Substan- 
tial expenditures are necessary in order to fulfill these needs, as well as 
providing for the future. Your Commissioners are studying means for 
providing the necessary income to finance expansion of storage and treat- 
ment facilities. Quite frankly, it is not an easy task. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the various town 
officials and department heads for their co-operation during the year, 
with special thanks to the Highway, Fire and Police departments 
for their valuable assistance under emergency conditions last winter. 
Needless to say, we are grateful for the splendid performance of the 
superintendent and all department personnel, who have helped to make 
our job a little easier.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

At the 1968 Town Meeting the voters of Cohasset accepted our 
proposed amendment to the zoning by-law increasing frontage for a lot 
from 20 feet to 50 feet. This has been a tremendous advantage to the 
Board in maintaining what we consider an orderly development of the 
so called "pork chop" divisions of land. Next year we anticipate sub- 
mitting additional zoning by-law amendments. 

At the past Town Meeting Mr. Joseph Barresi offered a resolution 
that the Planning Board exercise its legal responsibility for capital plan- 
ning and programming on a regular continuing basis by the development 

59 



of an annual capital program. Thus, the past year has been quite busy 
with capital planning. We were very fortunate to have the able assistance 
of Mrs. Ellen Smith and Mr. Brian Wilkin working on this project with 
the Board. 

During 1968 30 lots were approved for residential construction. The 
total number of approved lots not yet built on is now 157. 

We also have been very busy with drainage problems due to ne- 
glected or damaged brooks. This particular problem has consumed much 
time, study, and on-site inspection in various sections of the town to 
alleviate the cause. 

The cooperation of Mr. Anthony W. Vento ,health agent, and Mr. 
Edwin H. Pratt, water superintendent, as well as officials. Boards, and 
other employees of the town during the past year is deeply appreciated.

REPORT OF THE WIRE DEPARTMENT 

Five new Fire Alarm boxes were installed at location spots to give 
better coverage in these areas. 

All Fire alarm boxes were tested, oiled and painted. All new elec- 
trical installations and repairs in town owned buildings were done by 
this department. 

Electrical wiring performed by Electrical Contractors was carefully 
inspected and wiring permits and fees were filed with Town Accountant 
and Town Treasurer. 

Due to the new additions of the High School much time is involved 
by this department in wiring changes of Fire Alarm and other wiring 
systems. 

I wish to express my thanks for the help and cooperation received 
from all Town Officials and Departments of the Town of Cohasset. 

Respectfully yours, 

EDWARD P. MALLEY 

Superintendent of Wires

REPORT FROM THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Committee met frequently during the entire year and especially 
during November and December in order to keep abreast of current re- 
quests and needed changes and to determine the recommndations for 1969. 

Meetings, both formal and informal, were held with the personnel 
of many departments, with the Advisory Board, and with the Board of 
Selectmen. 

The Massachusetts and Boston Consumer Price Index was used to 
show the effect of inflation on the purchasing power of wages and the 
Municipal Salary Survey of 186 Massachusetts towns, including all South 
Shore towns, was carefully analyzed to assist in determining the recom- 
mendations for 1969. 

The Committee recommendations are contained in the articles of 
the warrant relating to wages. They include a 6 percent general increase, 
three jobs changed because of changed evaluation of responsibilities, and 
a few speed-ups of step increases within a rate range for new employees 
or those promoted. 

Compared with other towns of the state with a population of 5,000 
to 10,000, or even with 10,000 to 15,000, Cohasset ranks very high in 
all phases of employee compensation. 

We wish to express the Committee's thanks to all who have assisted 
us in our work of this year. 

Mr. Herbert R. Towle, Chairman for the years of 1966 and 1967, 
resigned during 1968. He was succeeded by Mr. Richard Samell who also 
resigned during 1968. Mr. G. H. Howkins was appointed to the Com- 
mittee in September and was elected Chairman in October. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G. H. HOWKINS, Chairman 



CIVIL DEFENSE REPORT 

To keep abreast of current Civil Defense preparedness programs I 
have attended monthly meetings at Sector Headquarters in Stoughton. 

Our emergency operating center has participated in monthly drills 
and to make our radio reception more effective a new antenna has been 
erected on top of the High School. 

The emergency warning system is tested twice monthly by the Fire 
Department and one of the signals will soon be relocated to town owned 
property on Forest Ave. The Army Duck is being reconditioned and 
will be permanently assigned at the Central Fire Station. 

I wish to express my thanks to the Board of Selectmen and various 
Department Heads for their cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 
T. GERARD KEATING 

Director of Civil Defense

REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN 

This will be my last report as your Librarian. The cooperation of 
the Library Boards and the Townspeople has combined to give us a fine 
Library and I look forward to more progress under new leadership in 
the years ahead. 

It has been a good year for the Library. There has been an upswing 
in the circulation; the formation of the Friends of the Library; our first 
film showing for the children and adults; the cataloging and shelving of 
Mr. Gammons' music library, and the installation of drapes in the Chil- 
dren's room and Assembly Hall. 

It was during Library Week in the Spring of 1968 that we had our first 
film program for children and adults. Other programs of interest were: Dr. 
Bergen talking about his book Old Nantasket; Mrs. Elaine Wentworth 
on her book for children Mission to Metlakatla, Mr. Hildebrandt on cur- 
rent books, a string quartet concert of chamber music by WiUiam Bell 
and friends; and Mrs. Frost with her delightful display and discussion of 
materials for Interior Decorating. Friends of the Library, Trustees, Di- 
rectors and Library staff cooperated to make the week interesting and 
successful. 

The Library has received gifts of books from the Garden Clubs, 
Woman's Club, Cohasset Village Book Shop and varous individuals. 
Dr. and Mrs. Eliot Hubbard, Jr. presented the Library with an attractive 
display rack in memory of Helen B. Hubbard. We have had continuous 
Art Exhibits through the courtesy of the South Shore Art Center and 
intersting Historical Exhibits courtesy of the Historical Society. 

Statistics for the year are as follows: 

New registrations 479 

Registrations withdrawn 15 

Number of books added (inc. recordings) 1,751 

Number of books withdrawn 1,117 

Total volumes in Library 33,822

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 

Submitted herewith is the report of the South Shore Mosquito Con- 
trol Project's activities for the year November 1, 1967 to October 31, 1968. 

The Project is a year round cooperative effort embracing the City 
of Quincy and Towns of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, 
Marshfield, Norwell, Scituate and Weymouth, covering a total area of 
172.21 square miles serving a population in excess of 223,000. 

The Project is authorized and acts under provisions of Massachusetts 

64 



General Laws, Chapter 252, Section 59, mosquito control provisions, and 
Chapter 112, Acts of 1931, pertaining to ditch maintenance of the salt 
marshes. 

The Project continued to base its program on a three-phase mos- 
quito reduction operation: Mosquito Source Reduction, Mosquito Larval 
Reduction and Mosquito Adult Reduction, giving priority in this order. 

1. Source Reduction — By properly placed and maintained ditches 
on coastal marshes, tidal and storm waters are allowed to flow properly 
off, where otherwise in part would become brackish to breed mosquitoes. 
Fill from ditch excavating must be graded to insure water pockets are 
not left to breed. 

The Project engages in many fresn water brook and stream clearance 
works, to eliminate temporary flood pools capable of mosquito breeding. 
In many cases it becomes necessary to excavate a new ditch through flood 
areas, to allow extreme rains and spring thaws to inundate this run off 
ditch, keeping water level at a minimum to reduce, if not eliminate, the 
mosquito breeding from the area. 

Brush clearing is necessary on most fresh water work to enable 
access of Project's trencher as well as for checking and spraying purposes. 

Source reduction in lineal feet for this period: 

Reclaimed ditch 50,330 

New ditch 4,110 

Brook and stream cleaning 23,335 

Brush clearing 15,235 

2. Mosquito Larval Reduction — To prevent mosquito eggs from 
hatching, the Project in the later winter months when ice cover allows 
walking upon, prehatch dusts many small isolated woodland pools. In 
mid-spring, usually after spring rains and thaw, helicopter and fixed wing 
aircraft are used to air spray the larger woodland flooded areas, to reduce 
the early spring hatch of mosquitoes that would normally emerge in 
great numbers. 

During the summer season it becomes a continual operation of 
checking and larviciding for there are so many types of wet areas, salt 
marshes, temporary flood pools, rock pools, quarries, tree holes, roadside 
pools, storm catchbasins and many other water containers and each of 
these will breed their own specific specie of mosquito. 

Amounts of insecticides used to larvicide with approximate acreages 
for this period: 

Prehatch dust — 3400 pounds to approximately 680 acres 
Air spray larviciding — 9730 gallons to approximately 9730 acres 
Ground larvicidmg — 4821 gallons to 4821 acres 
Storm catchbasins — 2077 gallons to 20,957 basins 

3. Mosquito Adult Reduction — Control of adult mosquitoes be- 

65 



comes necessary when large numbers emerge and move into the residential 
and recreational areas of a community. Many of these mosquitoes are 
breeding in the many unnatural water receptacles around homes, others 
migrate from uncontrolled large areas out of this Project's district. With 
these conditions it becomes necessary to space spray, or thermal fogging. 
These are methods by which mosquitoes are knocked down in flight, or 
residue spraying where mosquitoes resting upon treated surfaces are 
eliminated. 

Preference of mosquito control methods — This project would give 
to first, reduction of the sources for mosquitoes breeding, second, to its 
larval control. These would give sure and lasting results. However, each 
year telephone and letter requests for adult spraying of the neighbor- 
hoods increase. We must, due to work load, cut back on the former two 
methods. The Project would like to see more source reduction and larval 
control. This would also eventually mean a reduction in adult mosquitoes, 
which in turn would give a better and more lasting control of mosquitoes 
with the least expenditures of insecticide, time and funds. 

The Project mosquito adulticided with both mist blowers and power 
sprayers: 

11,990 gallons of insecticides to approximately 11,990 acres. 

It thermal fogged, using 303 gallons of insecticide applied to ap- 
proximately 1800 acres. 

This Project has now on order and expecting in the near future a 
new Diesel marsh crawler tractor with winch and backhoe attachments. 
This, making two trench units in operation, which shall at least double 
the output of trench footage next year. 

Also on order is a second catchbasin spray unit, a right hand drive 
Jeep Universal with power sprayer. This has been needed for some time 
in order to get all breeding catchbasins at the proper time. 

The Project's operations for next year shaU be based much as it 
has in the past. However, there are many new chemicals, as well as 
methods, coming about enabling us to pinpoint our control to the mos- 
quitoes without damaging, contaminating or unbalancing other members 
of the natural environment. Some we have tried, others we have plans 
to try. 

The Project's Superintendent and most permanent personnel are all 
members of the Northeastern Mosquito Control Association, an educa- 
tional organization formed to promote the efficiency of mosquito abate- 
ment through research, development or procedure and to interchange 
information with other mosquito control districts throughout the country. 
The Project's personnel have in the past several years attended training 
courses on mosquito control methods, safe use and handling of insec- 
ticides. They have all been tested and licensed in this capacity by the 
Massachusetts Pesticide Board. All journals, bulletins and publications 
relating to mosquitoes are received and read to be assured of up to date 

66 



operation. The Project can give assurance to all it has and shall continue 
to be conducted in an intelligent and efficient manner. 

The Project wishes to acknowledge the help received from officials 
and departments of the communities it serves and sincerely hopes that 
benefits derived by these departments as a result of this cooperation are 
as great as those derived by the Project.

REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 

After some delay in receiving necessary approval for State and 
Federal funds for the construction of your new Water Pollution Control 
Facility, bids were opened in mid-April, with all bids coming in higher 
than available funds, due to the rising costs between the time of the 
Engineers' original estimates and the date of the bid openings. Faced 
with this problem, your Commissioners called for a special town meeting 
on June 5, 1968. With the additional funds approved, construction 
began July 1, 1968. 

To date progress has been on schedule, and should continue, assur- 
ing completion in early Spring 1969. 

During this period, your Commissioners have expended their 
efforts, not only in overseeing the progress of construction, but have 
established plans for a department to handle the administration and opera- 
tion of these facilities. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the various town 
officials and department heads for their cooperation and assistance, and 
to our part-time Superintendent, who has been our liaison with the en- 
gineers, general contractor, town officials and citizenry.

REPORT OF THE TREE WARDEN 

Good care and good growing conditions have kept our trees in good 
condition so that few have had to be removed. Trees growing to suitable 
size have been planted where possible. 

Weak branches and dead wood have been pruned on street trees to 
prevent breakage in storms. 

Roadsides were continued to be pruned and grasses mowed to im- 
prove the vision and keep the roadsides neat. 

Many thanks to all officials and citizens who by their calls and 
comments have assisted me in my work.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF INSECT PEST CONTROL 

Dutch Elm Beetle and Canker worms are the only insects bothering 
our trees to any extent. These have been controlled with SEVIN, a com- 
paratively safe insecticide. 

Dutch Elm Disease 

Our Elm Trees are sprayed with Methoxychlor, a non-persistent 
insecticide, to control the Elm Bark Beetle, the vector of Dutch Elm 
Disease. 

There were 60 condemned cases of Dutch Elm Disease last year. 
All free falling trees have been cut and the remaining trees to be topped 
should be removed by early spring. 

Poison Ivy 

Poison Ivy was sprayed as usual.

BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE 

The Department processed 5 1 applications in the period from January 
1, 1968 to June 30, 1968 prior to the State control of Public Welfare. Of 
the 51 applications, 45 were approved. 

Total expenditures covering the five categories for this period were 
$151,520.83; total reimbursements by Federal and State were $129,230.87. 

We should like to express our appreciation to Mrs. Wright, Social 
Worker and to Mrs. Medeiros, District Nurse and her Staff for their 
services and assistance. 

School Department officials work in conjunction with our Department 
to provide the children with every educational opportunity. May we ex- 
press our appreciation for their assistance. 

Camp experiences were realized for many children because of the 
generosity of religious and civic groups. We are very grateful for their 
continued interest and efforts. 

Since the State has taken over Public Welfare, there shall be no 
further reports forthcoming. 

Respectfully submitted,

Director of Public Assistance 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

The Selectmen report completion of all matters placed in their hands 
by Town Meeting votes with the exception of the completion of the pur- 
chase of 6.648 acres of land for school purposes as authorized by Article 
26 of the 1967 Town Meeting and the clearing up of the title to Black 
Rock Beach, so-called, both of which are in the hands of Town Counsel. 

The dredges have finally left the harbor and the specified work has 
been completed. Still to receive final consideration is the question of re- 
moving some outcroppings of ledge and rock. It is understood that a bal- 
ance of funds remains to attend to these matters and the final decision of 
the Army Engineers is awaited. 

We have recommended to the Personnel Committee that the office 
of Harbor Master be made a full time position with a salary commen- 
surate with its duties and responsibilities. Many areas of concern exist, 
both administrative and functional, although progress has been and is 
being made. A Committee has been established to assist in definition and 
resolution of the problems and it has worked actively with the Harbor 
Master, Harry Ritter. 

With the "Baby Hoover" Committee we have met at least once with 

70 



all elected and appointed town officials and boards. It is hoped that these 
meetings have made possible increased understanding of the differing 
points of view that exist. The Board of Selectmen continue to feel that 
an Executive Secretary would not fulfill a useful function within the 
present framework of town government. Provision in the budgets for in- 
crease in technical assistance to several of the town boards and officials, 
on the other hand, seems most desirable. 

The rehabilitation of Government Island, aided by substantial con- 
tributions from interested citizens, due in large measure to the efforts 
of the Cohasset Historical Society contmues in a gratifying manner. The 
Government Island Committee has many aspects of future development 
of this area under study and will continue to report from time to time. 

Our thanks to all town employees, department heads, boards and 
committee members for another productive year, and our appreciation 
also to those who from time to time bring matters to our attention for 
responsible action. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE W. Mclaughlin, Chairman

GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

Herewith is the annual report of the Government Island Committee 
for the year 1968. 

The Committee has held meetings at frequent intervals during the 
past year with considerable time and thought directed to formulating 
plans for the future use of this valuable community property. 

Significant improvements have been made by the Cohasset Sailing 
Club, by the Cohasset Historical Society in the restoration of the Muiot's 
Light templates, and by the Town in the removal of the building near 
the entrance. Consequently, this Committee believes that the appearance 
and value to the community of this property have been greatly improved 
and the purposes for which the area was originally acquired are begirming 
to be realized. 

There have been a number of proposals from private groups for use 
of portions of the property. We particularly refer to proposals of the South 
Shore Art Center, the George H. Mealy Post American Legion and a 
group sponsoring a swimming pool. 

It will be recalled that at the annual Town Meeting held March 2, 
1946, the sum of $29,000.00 was appropriated by the Town for the 
purchase of Government Island for "recreational, proprietary, utilitarian 
or any other municipal purpose or purposes for which the same may be 
adopted for the benefit of the residents of Cohasset". Vote: 377 yea - 2 no. 

This committee is therefore unanimously of the opinion: 
1st. That each new proposal for the use of any part of the area must 

71 



be considered in the light of the part it plays in our total recreational 
picture. 

2nd. That no part of Government Island should be sold for the 
foreseeable future on the basis of the 1946 town meeting vote ,and of 
our conviction that the expansion of recreational facilities will require 
most of the use of this property. 

3rd. That no commercial enterprise be permitted on the premises 
with the exception of the fishing industry by Cohasset residents. 

4th. That improvements to the physical properties, especially the 
access roads and parking areas, should be continued in line with plans 
already submitted to the Selectmen. 

5th. That consultations be held with the Harbor Committee, Com- 
munity Center, Boy and Girl Scouts, Conservation Commission, Recrea- 
tion Commission, and possibly others, in the determination of suitable 
plans for the use of this area. 

Numerous other points have been raised at one or more of our 
meetings and in our opinion deserve further study, such as: 

Limiting the use of the Island to Cohasset residents by requiring 
parking stickers similar to those in use at Sandy Beach. 

Establishing facilities for docking and service of private boats owned 
by residents and visitors to the harbor, including a Town sponsored 
Yacht Club. 

Such improvements in the recreational facilities that could be com- 
pleted without incurring large capital or maintenance expense to the 
taxpayers. 

Custodianship, maintenance and policing of this area. In this regard 
a Government Island Commission should be established to act as man- 
aging authority of the entire property. Said management commission to 
consist of one member of the Board of Selectmen, Harbormaster, Sailing 
Club, Fishermen's Association and Historical Society. 

The Board of Selectmen would be notified of any proposed use and 
occupancy of the premises and said Board would have the right to veto 
same provided notice of objection is given to the "Commission" within 
60 days of receipt of notice from the "Commission" to grant permission 
by lease or otherwise to an interested party. 

The Government Island Committee wishes to study further the 
future role of the Island and its part in our total recreational picture. 
Therefore, we ask that this report be accepted as one of progress and 
that this Committee be continued.

REPORT OF THE HARBOR MASTER 

It is with pleasure that I submit this report for 1968 as your Harbor 
Master, for I feel that 1968 was a year of several firsts for Cohasset Harbor. 

One was the initiation of the requirement that every boat owner 
must apply for a mooring permit to be issued on a first-come first-served 
basis upon payment of a nominal fee. 

Another was accomplished through a transfer of funds, $1,500.00, 
by the Advisory Board for the purpose of relocating moorings after the 
long last dredging of the harbor by the Army Engineers. 

StiU another was the appointment of an active Harbor Study Com- 
mittee by the Board of Selectmen. 

And last but not least, a building placed on Government Island to 
be used as an office for the Harbor Master. 

I sincerely believe that these several steps are taken in the right 
direction to put the harbor on a self supporting basis in the near future. 

The boating industry is growing at an alarming rate, over 200% 
nationwide in the previous year. This can well be appreciated by boat 
owners as well as by potential owners. At the present time there are over 
90 boats on a waiting list for mooring permits in Cohasset Harbor. 

It should be obvious that due to the limited amount of space to work 
with and the congestion that now confronts us, the by-laws pertaining to 
the harbor must be adhered to for the best interest of all concerned rather 
than on an individual basis. 

It is hoped that with the cooperation of the boat owners, the standing 
committees associated with the harbor, the Board of Selectmen and all 
other interested citizens, Cohasset Harbor wiU be utilized in the best in- 
terests of all concerned. This should enhance its natural beauty and be 
recognized by all. 

Respectively submitted 
HARRY RITTER 

Harbor Master 



SEALER OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO SURVEY THE 

ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONING OF THE VARIOUS 

TOWN OFFICES, BOARDS AND DEPARTMENTS 

In fulfillment of Article 46 passed by the 1967 Town Meeting and 
in accordance with a resolution of the 1968 Town Meeting, the Com- 
mittee submits this report. As part of this report 3 articles and 1 resolu- 
tion have been attached for consideration by the 1969 Town Meeting. 

In 1968, joint meetings were held by the Committee and the Board 
of Selectmen with aU Department heads and boards except the Water 
and Sewer Commissioners. 

The Committee is still convinced, as it reported last year, that 
there is a lack of coordination and unifying direction in the governmental 
affairs of the town. The present system provides many small, independently 
operating town offices and departments reporting only to the annual town 
meeting. While all of these individuals and departments may cooperate 
on individual matters there is presently no central body or administrative 
head planning for and directing improvements, efficiencies, and coordina- 
tion of all administrative functions in all town departments. While the 
Board of Selectmen does exercise administrative direction over a limited 
segment of town government, such control is restricted to a relatively 
few town offices specifically reporting to the Selectmen and thus any 
action beyond those offices can be achieved only at the sufference of each 
of the other town departments. 

For example, central purchasing of a wider range of items used in 
all departments or the centralized purchase, storage, maintenance and 
inter-departmental use of a greater proportion of our town-owned equip- 
ment are extremely difficult to achieve under the present system. 

We have examined the purchasing procedures of the town and the 
extent to which modem methods and procedures are in use in the town 
offices. We do not believe that substantial savings can be realized in the 
short run. Centralized purchasing of several major items is in effect. 
The small number of Town Hall employees would not produce significant 
savings, even if some reduction of employee effort were achieved by 
revised office procedures or equipment. 

We do, however, believe that long term savings and avoidance of 
potential cost increases are possible with the continuing administrative 
efforts of a Board of Selectmen assisted by an Executive Secretary, with 
the consolidation of several separate town departments and with some 
other changes in the basic structure of our town government. 

Your Committee further agrees that several of the town boards and 
departments, and accordingly the town, suffer because of inadequate 
engineering or technical assistance. Although a sum is annually appro- 
priated for a Town Engineer, it is inadequate to service the total technical 
needs of agencies such as the Planning Board, Board of Health, Con- 
servation Committee, Highway Surveyor and others. We believe that in- 

76 



creased technical effort should be expended on such aids as topographical 
surveys, three dimensional maps, street profiles, drainage surveys, etc. 
Equally important is the need for readily available technical assistance 
in zoning, sub-division control, zoning enforcement, building code inspec- 
tion (upon adoption of a building code), public works projects and other 
specialized problems faced by many departments of our town government. 

Therefore, in order to achieve an improvement in the structure and 
operation of our town government the Committee recommends adoption 
of a continuing program based upon the following basic changes: 

Administrative Director 

We believe that the powers and responsibility of the Board of Select- 
men should be broadened so that the Selectmen will be specifically re- 
sponsible for a greater degree of administrative direction and coordination 
among all town departments. Such broadening of responsibility would 
be achieved by resolutions of the town meeting, specific articles passed 
by the town meetings, amendment of town by-laws and where necessary 
by obtaining legislative modification of the General Laws by the Legis- 
lature. 

To assist the Board with their expanded powers and with the day 
to day coordination and administrative management of town affairs an 
Executive Secretary should be provided. To help pay for the new office, 
the salary for the Office of Selectman should be reduced to a nominal 
amount. 

Thus, we are submitting an article for passage of a by-law author- 
izing the employment of an Executive Secretary. However, while we 
recommend that the new by-law be adopted by the 1969 meeting, we 
suggest that it not be implemented until a Board of Selectmen agrees to 
the need and is willing to utilize the office to its potential. We do not 
believe that the present Board agrees with us and thus the office should 
not be thrust upon it. An Executive Secretary can only be beneficial when 
a Board of Selectmen wants it since such officer can only exercise those 
duties delegated to him by the Board. 

Technical Assistance 

Your Committee does not visualize a fuU-time engineer at this time. 
Instead we suggest a contractual arrangement with an engineering firm 
or a qualified individual engineer to provide technical assistance for all 
town agencies. Any firm or individual retained by the town will be pre- 
cluded under the "conflict of interst" law from representing a client in 
any adversary proceeding with the town. 

It is suggested that the responsibility for selecting, engaging, assign- 
ing and coordinating the activities of the engineering firm or individual 
engineer should rest with the Board of Selectmen. 

Thus, we are submitting an article to the 1969 Town Meeting to 
provide for such technical assistance beginning as of January 1, 1970. 

77 



Treasurer-Tax Collector 

While the Committee recognizes the diligence and industriousness 
of both the incumbent Treasurer and the incumbent Tax Collector, we 
do recommend the consolidation of the two oflfices and the election of 
a single Treasurer-Collector in 1970. 

With the consolidation of the duties of these two officials and the 
combination of their office staffs into a single office, there should be a 
detailed procedural review of the new combined function. We believe 
that the resultant combined operation wiU result in a long term reduction 
of salary and administrative costs. 

Thus, we are submitting an article to the 1969 Town Meeting to 
provide for the consolidation of these offices effective with the town elec- 
tion to be held in 1970. If this article is passed by the 1969 Town Meeting, 
the Committee to Study the Administrative Functioning of the Town 
Government, or its successor, would provide prior to January 1, 1970 a 
recommended revised salary for the new position and cooperate with the 
Personnel Board as to any possible revisions required for the combined 
office staff of the new office. 

Board Of Public Works 

There are many of the separate and independent departments of 
the town government which have overlapping responsibilities, or whose 
functions are dependent upon technical or engineering direction. 

Recognizing that this situation exists throughout the Commonwealth, 
the General Laws provide for any town to adopt a Board of Public 
Works to direct, coordinate and oversee the functions of such sub- 
divisions as highway surveyor, tree warden, moth superintendent, water 
commissioners, sewer commissioners and others as set forth in Chapter 
41 of the General Laws. 

The adoption of a Board of Public Works to direct and coordinate 
the various technical departments of our town government would provide 
the opportunity for the centralized control of a very high proportion of 
town-owned equipment, extension of standardized specification to tech- 
nical purchasing, centralizing of overlapping functions such as main- 
tenance of parks, playgrounds, cemeteries and other town properties and 
greater inter-departmental use of personnel as well as equipment. 

Thus, we are submitting a resolution to the 1969 Town Meeting to 
obtain the sentiment of the town as to the advisibility of establishing a 

Board of Public Works. 
Summary 

Your Committee believes that the increasing population of Cohasset 
and the changing nature of problems facing the town requires certain 
changes in the structure and administration of the town government. 

We believe that the changes suggested will result in the long range 
improvement of the efficiency of our town government. 

78 



It is our conviction that the program for improvement of the func- 
tioning of our town must be a continuing effort but that the 1969 Town 
Meeting should approve the three articles and one resolution presented 
by the Committee as a definite start to the long range efforts for change 
and improvement. 

If the articles and/or resolutions are adopted by the 1969 Town 
Meeting then a further resolution will be presented to the Town Meeting 
for continuance of the Committee to implement the articles and resolu- 
tions as passed by the Meeting.

and installed by a local welding shop, under department supervision. De- 
partment personnel installed piping, painted and performed other neces- 
sar>' and related work. With this work completed it gives all pumping 
engines of the department the capability of utilizing pre-connected IVi 
inch hose lines for quick attack as well as the ability to lay parallel hose 
lines. 

Routme maintenance, such as plugs, points and so forth, as well as 
lubrication was performed. Replacement of parts, tires and batteries were 
made as required. The department is most fortunate to have a firefighter 
who is a capable and skilled mechanic capable of making these repah-s 
and maintaining the apparatus and equipment. This results in a substantial 
dollar saving to the Town. 

In the preceding Inventory of Automotive Equipment it can be noted 
that the newest piece of apparatus is 8 years old and the oldest is 22 years. 

During the next 10 years, as outlined in a report on Capital Ex- 
penditures to the Planning Board, it will be necessary to expend in excess 
of $125,000.00 for the replacement of fire apparatus. In order to space 
these purchases so they do not fall in consecutive years it is important 
that several things be done ... 

1. the scheduled table of replacement be followed. 

2. the continued yearly addition of funds to the Stabilization Fund, 
this has not been done in past recent years. 

3. the purchase of carefuUy designed and engineered quality ap- 
paratus, resulting in good life span and useful service. 

Summary Of Alarms And Emergency Calls 

The following is a summary of the alarms and emergency calls 
handled by the department in the year 1968. A definition of terms would 
probably be helpful. A beU alarm is one for which the fire whistles are 
blown and that the Call Firefighters respond to and a still alarm is one 
which is handled by the on-duty Permanent Firefighters and no whistle 
or signal is sounded. By reviewing the following summary it can be learned 
that the greater percentage of calls are handled by the on-duty firefighters. 

BELL ALARMS 84 

STILL ALARMS 313 



Total 397 

Not included in the above is a total of 203 cellars that were pumped 
out during the flooding emergency of March 18-20. This extra service 
was a result of heavy ram and flooding throughout the Town, while not j 
a regular service of the department it was done to assist the Townspeople 
and overcome a disastrous situation.

each commanded by an officer. Each group is then divided again and 
assigned to the various stations. It should be noted that at the North 
Cohasset and Beechwood Fire Stations there is only one firefighter on 
duty per shift. This makes effective firefighting difficult until additional 
help arrives.

townspeople.

Training 

Training in the Fire Service is a continuing thing . . . new tech- 
niques are tried out and the old ones require continued drill and practice. 
Again, as in past years members of the department attended the two day 
New Hampshire Fire Training School . . . this year the courses covered 
were ventilation and forcible entry, emergency rescue, pump operations, 
radio procedures and breathing apparatus. 

Continued use of training films and slides obtained through equip- 
ment manufacturers and in service training sessions were held covering 
various important subjects such as sprinkler and fire detection systems. 

Members of the department attended Massasoit Community College 
which offered a credit course in Fire Science. This course ran for 16 weeks 
and covered the Introduction to Fire Prevention. Continuous courses on 
related subjects will be offered and various department members have 
registered to attend. These subjects when completed will make a student 
eligible for an Associates Degree in Fire Science. 

Stations And Equipment 

Each year all of the fire hose of the department is tested to 250 psi, 
washed, inspected and dried. Replacements were made as necessary. This 
is necessary so that a proper inventory of hose is available. This year 800 
feet of 2^/4 inch Double Jacketed hose was purchased ... this hose is 
made of synthetic fiber filler, which is stronger and less affected by mildew 
and rot. 

As provided for in the 1968 budget, three more self-contained 
breathing apparatus units were purchased . . . making a total of ten. 
These units are of the latest design and much like SCUBA diving units. 
This purchase completes this program for the present or until such time 
as additional units become necessary. 

Included in the 1969 budget is a sum to allow for replacement of a 
27 year old Inhalator-Aspirator-Resuscitator. This purchase is necessary 
to allow for reliability in this equipment. 

The sub-stations at Beechwood and North Cohasset are outdated 
and totally inadequate. They should be replaced as soon as the financial 
condition of the Town warrants . . . with a modern, fireproof structure, 
capable of housing at least four engines and a proportionate number of 
men, at a location near the geographic center of these two areas. The 
fire department could then gain better usage of both men and apparatus 
under this type of operation. 

Public Interest 

During the summer of 1968 the largest single fire hazard in the Town 
of Cohasset, the Black Rock House, was demolished. The fire department 
working in cooperation with the building wrecker burned the debris at 
the Town Dump and on the site. These burning details were at the ex- 

83 



pense of the wrecker and allowed a safe and orderly removal of many 
many truckloads of combustible materials. Standing, this building was a 
potential threat to the entire neighborhood but we all can now, breathe 
a sigh of relief. 

Residents of the Town of Cohasset have been most cooperative in 
obtaining permits for fires in the open. This is required by the General 
Laws of the Commonwealth. A permit can be obtained by calling Fire 
Headquarters by telephone and a permit will be issued when weather and 
wind conditions warrant. This permit is good only one day . . . and the 
holder of the permit must have the fire extinguished by sun down . . . and 
have means at hand for controlling the fire. 

Recommendations 

There presently is a committee studying the adoption of a building 
code. This is most important for the promotion of life safety and the re- 
duction of fire damage in all types of structures and occupancies. Included 
in this code should be areas that provide for fire protection devices such 
as sprinkler systems and fire and smoke detection . . . the square foot 
area and type of occupancy should govern the need. Keeping in mind 
that 14,000 lives were lost in fires in this country in the past year, most of 
which occurred in residential fires. 

Appreciation 

In the past year the department lost one permanent firefighter, 
Richard P. Oliver, due to a forced disability retirement. Firefighter Oliver 
joined the department in November 1951 and retired on November 11, 
1968. I would like to extend to him the thanks and appreciation of the 
Fire Department for this faithful and honorable service. 

In conclusion I would like to extend the thanks of this department 
to the citizens of Cohasset, the Board of Selectmen, the heads and mem- 
bers of 3\\ town departments and boards, the call firefighters and the 
permanent officers and men of the department for their cooperation, 
guidance and assistance during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
CHARLES PIEPENBRINK 
Chief of Fire Department

1 REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY SURVEYOR 

j 

Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for the 
ji year ending December 31, 1968. 

During the winter months the Department worked on Street drainage, 
and tried to correct ice conditions, which prevailed in different sections 
of Town. The Spring saw the sweeping of streets, clearing of catch basins 
and the painting of street lines. Fences were repaired and painted. Street 
signs were painted, replaced and repaired. 

This year the Department installed 30 Catch Basins and laid 3900' 
of 10", 12" and 15" drain pipe. Two and one half miles of Mix in Place 
was laid on various streets and private ways throughout the Town. This 
work will continue. 

In a period of thirteen years, the Department has installed 347 
Standard Catch Basins, laid 35,000' of Drain Pipe and resurfaced 33'/^ 
miles of roads and private ways throughout the Town. 

Chapter 90 Construction and Maintenance Funds were applied for 
this year. The Construction funds to be used on Elm Street and the Main- 
tenance funds to be used on Jerusalem Road, from Forest Avenue to 
Rte. 228 at West Comer. 

The 1968 Maintenance funds were used on a section of Border 
Street and to start drainage work on Jerusalem Road. 

The Department has money to spend on Forest Avenue. This work 
consists of resurfacing with Type I asphalt, removing a section of ledge 
and installing a new culvert. 

The Town will receive the balance of the 616 Monies this year, 
which will be used on South Main Street, from Summer Street to Stanton 
Road, for the installation of necessary drainage and resurfacing. This 
project has been approved by the State Department of Public Works. 

This Department has tried to keep in mind the ever increasing cost 
of material and labor and has presented a budget which reflects to a 
similar one in 1962. This might not be a good policy, but the department 
can still perform its' duties satisfactorily. 

This year the Department has requested under the capital outlay 
Budget, a Front End Loader with Backhoe attachment to replace the 
5 year old machine now used by the department. 

The Highway Department has six permanent men who perform all 
the duties throughout the year. 

I wish to thank the men of the Highway Department and the people 
of Cohasset. 

Respectfully submitted, 
LOUIS C. BAILEY, JR. 
Highway Surveyor

REPORT OF THE RECREATION COMMISSION 

The Recreation Commission has just completed its 12th year of 
operation. The Commission meets on the second Wednesday, every 
month, at 7.30 P.M. in the Town Hall. Any citizen of the Town is most 
welcome to attend and bring before the Commission, suggestions as to 
new recreational activities or improvement of existing programs. 

The townspeople should realize that the Commission is expected to 
handle details of finances, maintenance of recreational areas and new and 
existing programs. The Commission needs the cooperation of the resi- 
dents to enthusiastically support and work on recreational activities of 
their choice. 

During the past year Mr. Eustis James was selected by the Commis- 
sion to be Superintendent, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of 
Mr. Sullivan on January 4th, 1968. Mr. James' duties have been increased 
so that he is now responsible for Milliken, Beechwood and Barnes Fields. 

At the Beechwood Field 332' of chain link fence was erected along 
Church Street. Since the baseball diamond is overgrown with weeds, 
extensive work is planned for the field next Spring. Lumber and paint 
were supplied to Mr. Vernon Tibbetts, a Beechwood resident, who, with 
volunteer help, repaired and painted the wooden bleachers and backstop. 
The Chairman of the Commission, met with the newly formed Beechwood 
Neighborhood Club, to see what assistance the Commission might give. 

The Summer Program, voted by the Town at the March 1968 Town 
Meeting, was extremely successful. It was a rotating program, run al- 
ternately at three different fields — one week at Beechwood, the next 
at Milliken and the next at Barnes Field. The attendance figure for the 
ten weeks was conservatively estimated at 1600 children, ages 5-12. The 
Commission plans, for the Summer of 1969, to run two separate non 
rotating programs for ten weeks; one at Beechwood and the other at 
Barnes Field. 

The Hull Street Playground program, carried on in conjunction 

91 



with Hingham, was continued. This is a good joint venture, both 
physically and financially. 

The Commission, at the suggestion of a resident, has proposed a 
plan to light the tennis courts at Milliken Field and set up two basketball 
courts. The Commission has requested money from the Town to carry 
out this plan which would provide both night tennis and basketball. 

The Commission has requested a new backstop for Barnes Field. 
During the past year the Cohasset Youth Athletic Association (CYAA) 
paid for the fence that runs along the third base line in front of the 
dugout. These, of course, are for the added protection of the growing 
number of persons that use the field. 

A simple brochure on the Recreational Facilities and Activities in 
the Town available to the residents is being assembled. This is being 
done mostly on a volunteer basis by members of the Commission and 
others. 

The Commission has discussed the proposal that a teenager be 
sought as an additional member of the Commission. This addition is, 
of course, to establish another area of communication between age groups, 
which at this time is badly needed. 

The Commission wishes to thank all Town Ofiicials and members 
of the various committees and boards for their cooperation and under- 
standing. Only by working together can any progress be made.

REPORT OF THE CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

In 1968 the Conservation Commission proposed to Town Meeting 
that the town acquire Sassafras Rock, a small rocky island in Little 
Harbor frequented for nesting purposes by terns and ducks. Approval 
was given by the townspeople and the property, which seemed to belong 
to no one, is in the process of being acquired; after which time it will be 
preserved in its natural state. 

The Commission is in the process of developing a major natural 
resource plan which should be useful to present and future Conserva- 
tion Commissions and which is required by the State if matching funds 
are to be obtained in the future for conservation land acquisition. The 
plan will include areas which the Commission thinks are worthy of ac- 
quisition for recreational and conservation purposes. Application for 

92 



techaical assistance in this project is being made to the Norfolk Con- 
servation District. 

The Cohasset Conservation Trust, the work of which is closely 
related to and encouraged by the Conservation Commission, had an 
active and productive first year. The report of its activities and accom- 
plishments follows: 

The Cohasset Conservation Trust's first calendar year of operation 
was very successful. It was highlighted by increased activity, enlarged 
membership and acquisition of our first parcel of land. 

At Trustees' meetings during the year various projects were discussed. 
Also, several suitable pieces of vacant land were considered for possible 
acquisition or easement. 

Because of increasing use of the harbor by more and more residents 
of Cohasset and the growing importance of waterfront property, it was 
decided to direct our energies first tov^'ards the possible purchase of 
Bassing's Beach. After negotiations were completed with Parker F. 
Schofield, the owner, a community effort was launched in July to raise 
the necessary funds and two months later the goal was reached. We are 
now in the process of repairing the two cottages on the property. It is 
hoped that sometime in the future additional property might be avavilable 
adjacent to the present llVi acres. 

Membership following the first meeting in May 1967 has increased 
from 50 to 400. This is most gratifying and we hope that it will continue 
to grow as additional projects are undertaken. 

The Trustees wish to thank all those who gave of their time and 
effort this summer to campaign for Bassing's Beach and all those who 
through their generosity made the acquisition possible. 

Trustees of the Cohasset Conservation Trust are Edward B. Long, 
John F. Hubbard, Osborne F. Ingram, Richard D. Leggat and Hatherly 
L. Souther.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET 
PUBLIC SEWERAGE STUDY COMMITTEE 



This committee strongly feels that the sanitation needs of the center 
of town should be served by the public sewerage facilities presently under 
construction in Jacobs Meadow and to this end appropriate articles will 
be proposed at a future town meeting. 

Other areas of town have problems, as is well known, and this fact 
impels the committee to a serious consideration of a long range plan for 
the Public Sewerage System. 

Recently, as a result of tests made in August, 1968, the State Dept. 
of Public Health has informed the town that plans to extend the sewerage 
system to serve the area between Clay Spring Road and route 3A should 
be made immediately. The alternative to this solution will be "for the town 
of Cohasset to locate and eliminate all connections to the street drains in 
the Veteran's Housing" area. In a later communication the State, while 
again requiring that town officials proceed immediately with corrective 
work, suggests that temporary measures may be implemented on an emer- 
gency basis. It is clear that eventually a permanent solution to what is 
obviously a permanent problem will have to be advanced. 

The committee therefore regards these problems as sufficiently serious 
to request that this report be accepted and that the committee be continued.

This has been another year of little strife or turmoil for the Board 
of Health, thanks again to the efficiency and dedication of the real workers 
of the team, the agent and the public health nurses. The secretarial and 
office workers must also be given their share of the credit. 

There have been a minimum of complaints from the sewage disposal 
branch of operations, but we realize the number of complaints are not 
truly representative of the problems involved. Few people will caU to 
complain that their own sewage disposal system is not working. We hope, 
however, with the inception of a treatment plant and public sewer system 
for the schools, that this system will shordy encompass a major portion of 
the center of town and eventually become all inclusive for the entire town. 
This perhaps, is an inappropriate time to talk of a public sewerage system, 
what with the already predicted increase in our tax rate, but it must be 
considered very seriously, particularly in view of the fact that already we 
may be dealing with possible contamination. 

The dump has been a source of difficulty. We are considering a 
change in the operation of the dump and feel that if its management does 
not satisfy us that changes must be made. We are making slight changes 
in the hours of operation consistent with daylight hours. They will be 
changed again with the onset of daylight saving time. 

Once again, we the Board, are grateful to all who have helped us 
throughout Sie year.

This year, for the first time, pre-school physicals were given at our 
May Well Child Clinic. Fifteen availed themselves of this service. Attend- 
ance at the Well Child Conference has been slightly down from last year. 
However, I feel it would be ill-advised at this time to curtail the number 
of clinics until it can be more conclusively determined whether the trend 
is permanent or temporary. 

Casework Report 

Four cases were carried over from 1967, and two of these are still 
active. In addition, two cases were referred by the Board of Health in 
1968; one a financial investigation to determine eligibility for help with 
a hospital bill. The second was a man with a severe illness, on whom 
securing of medical information was needed. Also, reassurance was given 
to the family, and help in obtaining financial assistance.

A report of the Dental Clinic, sponsored by the Board of Health, 
will be found in the report of the School Department.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

This has been a busy year for your school committee. In addition 
to our regular monthly meetings we have had many special and sub- 
committee meetings. 

The additional rooms provided by the new addition to the High 
School have offered some much needed relief. The need for these addi- 
tional rooms can be best demonstrated by comparing this year's 12th grade 
which numbers 99 students, with the present 6th grade, which has an 
enroUment of 175. 

Overcrowding is still a matter of concern at both the Joseph Osgood 
and Deer Hill Schools. In order to provide some relief at the Deer Hill 
School an additional teacher will be added on January 2nd. This is a tem- 
porary step being taken to forestall any thoughts of getting into another 
expensive building program at this time. 

The Metco program which Cohasset participated in this year ap- 
pears to be a success. Nine Boston students are enrolled in this program. 

99 



At this writing your committee is considering the 1969 budget 
which contams the largest increase in history due mostly to our larger 
enrollment. Rest assured that your committee is giving serious considera- 
tion to the impact this budget will have on the taxpayers and that we will 
make every effort to keep it to an absolute minmium, without damaging 
or curtailing the high standards which now exist in our educational system. 

In closing I wish to express the Committee's thanks to our Super- 
intendent William Ripley for his cooperation. He has given notice that 
he wishes to conclude his services as Superintendent on July 30, 1969. 
As he closes out a long career of Public Service to the town, we wish to 
say congratulations on a job well done. In addition to taking the neces- 
sary steps to keep pace with our ever-increasing school enrollment he 
has brought outstanding teachers into the system, he has adopted modem 
teaching techniques and has established wonderful personal relations with 
students, teachers, parents and school committee members. The high 
rating of the Cohasset Educational System stands as a testimony to his 
many accomplishments. May his future be blessed with many years of 
good health.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

I hereby submit my twenty seventh report as Superintendent of the 
Cohasset Public Schools. The year 1968 has seen the practical completion 
of the addition to the renovation of the facilities for secondary school 
pupils. In September the added facilities included eleven general class- 
rooms, three science laboratories, one band and lecture room, one chorus 
room, a new home economics suite, a language laboratory, and adminis- 
trative offices in the new West wing of the building. In the East wing a 
new study hall and enlarged kitchen facilities were in operation. Renova- 
tions in the original building included a new chemistry laboratory, im- 
proved Guidance and Health facilities, and enlarged Junior High Shop, 
and the conversion of the old music room to a Junior High Art room. 
In October the new library located in the central courtyard was in opera- 
tion. It is expected that the new gymnasium with renovated locker rooms 
will be fully operational by February 1. 

100 



The major part of the site development was completed by November 
1. This included parking areas, playing fields, and tennis courts. By the 
spring of 1969 we expect final completion of this work. 

The first four months of occupancy have indicated a functional build- 
ing capable of having a flexible program meeting the needs and interests 
of our students. To take full advantage of this the administration has sub- 
stituted a modular scheduling system. Currently the town, through its 
School and School Facilities Committee must address itself to the prob- 
lem of elementary housing. Although the projections for elementary en- 
rollment do not present a clear picture at present, the 1969 enrollment 
should clarify the problem. 

The Pupil-Teacher Ratio Advisory Committee of the Massachusetts 
Department of Education has recommended an ideal ratio of 25:1 with 
supporting professional personnel of 100:1. In our elementary schools 
the ratio is 28:1. Also, at present two buildings are at near capacity. 
Therefore your School Facilities Committee has been considering pos- 
sible sites with the expectation of making a recommendation to the town 
in 1969. 

I should like to mention the helpful supportive action of two groups, 
the Cohasset Parent-Teachers Association and the Cohasset Boosters 
Club. The PTA should be commended for its fine programs and assist- 
ance at open houses, in the lunchrooms, and libraries. The Boosters Club 
has encouraged and supported extra curricular activities and the building 
of school loyalty and spirit. 

I feel that the quality of our educational program depends upon 
the professional competency of our principals and teachers. It has been 
a privilege and a pleasure to be associated with the competent and fine 
people who have filled these positions not only this year but throughout 
the years. Actually, the instructional staff makes the schools; bricks and 
mortar are incidental. 

May I express my gratitude to the hardworking members of the 
School Committee, who are true representatives of this community and 
who have made it such a satisfaction to sen^e with throughout the years. 

Miss Mary Phipps, supervisor of music, retired this year after four- 
teen years in the Cohasset Public Schools. 

It is my sad duty to record the death of Mr. Charles Smith, the first 
custodian of the Deer Hill school who had just completed fifteen years of 
faithful service in that building. 

Since the world in which we live has changed, education must adapt 
itself to the new environment in which we find ourselves. Most of us have 
observed that our younger generation becomes more sophisticated at an 
earlier age. Therefore, unless we adapt and adjust our educational 
methods, they become outmoded and ineffective. These problems must be 
met with vigorous action and understanding. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM RIPLEY, JR. 
Superintendent of Schools

REPORT OF THE 
SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

This year the students of our Carpentry Department completed our 
first home-building project. This large split-level house had all wiring and 
electrical heating installed by our Electrical Department. To provide the 
necessary practical on-the-job experience, we hope to contract for one 
home each year. 

This year's graduates were sought after by industry with most 
students placed long before graduation. In addition, many former gradu- 
ates, having completed their military obligations, are availing themselves 
of our placement service. In most cases they are working at their trade 
within one day after the initial request. 

This past summer we conducted our five weeks of summer school 
each morning in the areas of remedial reading and mathematics. 

Ten of our students were employed in a work-study program during 
July and August. They repainted all building trim and completed many 
minor repairs to maintain the school in its original condition. Since 3/4 
of the wages are financed by Federal Funds, this results in considerable 
savings. 

Scheduled to start in January, 1969 is a new day school course for 
training combination welders. We start with fifteen students at the ninth 
grade level. This will make ten trade areas that we will be serving. 

In October 1968 we opened another Manpower Training program 
for Radio and Television Repairman. Twenty trainees drawn from the 
ranks of the unskilled and underemployed will be given a new trade. 
The course runs sis hours a day, five days a week and will continue 
through next August. 

Our evening school program continues to flourish with 129 persons 
enrolled in eight trade areas. In addition, our facilities are being used 
by the Old Colony Power Squadron one night each week to conduct a 
course in piloting for almost 200 persons. 

We are gratified to report that our fine facility is being used in 
diversified ways to serve our regional towns, but it is more regretable 
as time goes on that the enrollment of Cohasset boys continues to de- 
crease. Something is wrong. While other regional towns have increased 
their enrollments, Cohasset alone fails to make effective use of this 
marvelous training facility. Our excessive per pupil cost reflects in part 
the fact that far fewer Cohasset boys are enrolled than was anticipated 
when Cohasset originally joined the South Shore Regional School District. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN A. GEARY 

Cohasset Representative
